Ex-lawyer blames Trump 'dirty deeds' as he gets 3 years

Ex-lawyer blames Trump 'dirty deeds' as he gets 3 yearsDonald Trump’s former lawyer apologized Wednesday for covering up the “dirty deeds” of his ex-boss as he was sentenced to three years for multiple crimes including hush money payments implicating the US president. Pleading for leniency in a packed Manhattan courtroom before US District Court Judge William H. Pauley III, Michael Cohen said he had been led astray by misplaced admiration for Trump. Cohen’s lawyers had argued for no jail time after he admitted charges brought by federal prosecutors in New York of tax evasion, providing false statements to a bank and illegal campaign contributions.
